A. Schutz’s Contribution to Phenomenological Theory of Intersubjectivity
The problem of intersubjectivity nowadays greatly influences our contemporary social thinking. The cause for this is that under post-modern conditions the concept of social reality includes multiple virtual realities, the majority of which are produced by computer activities. Such a virtual reality might include not only an imaginative animal of which we are able to take care, but even a spouse who — in contrast to a corporeal one — does not appeal to our feelings of responsibility or our sense of justice. Anyway, the efforts to tackle the problem of intersubjectivity seem to contribute both to the so-called mind-body problem and to the problem of a meaningful background of social communication as such.
